The dirty girl weed strain has somewhat mysterious origins. However, we have been able to ascertain its parentage, which leads us to our next section.
The dirty girl weed strain is basically a cross between two very potent sativa dominant hybrid marijuana plants…
This includes a particular type of the trainwreck breed known as the arcata trainwreck (often mistaken for lemon wreck) and Cinderella 99, also referred to as Cindy, Cindy 99, and C99.
Both parents are very much sativa dominant, and both feature high levels of the psychoactive compound THC. Their effects are very similar, and they both serve to produce a very energizing high. And, as you imagine, this has been passed down to the dirty girl weed strain.
The dirty girl weed strain works out at approximately 30% indica to 70% sativa.
It may also interest you to know that the dirty girl weed can be bred with white widow strain to produce another energizing sativa dominant hybrid strain known as dirty widow.
As we have made mention of earlier, the dirty girl weed strain has somewhat mysterious origins. But, we can confirm that it first appeared in the region of Washington’s Okanogan Valley.
The dirty girl weed strain is predominantly pale green in color. It has rather a lot of white crystals, and a scattering of bright orange hairs.
Besides the high you get with the dirty girl weed strain, the other great benefit of this strain is its amazing flavor. It tastes like some kind of sweet lemon candy. Very citrus and tropical, with a nice hint of mildly sharp pineapple, too.
The aroma of the dirty girl weed strain is very similar to its taste, as you may imagine. It gives off a sweet, fruity, pineapple-like scent. But at the same time you also get that more common slightly pungent earthy scent as well.
For those who don’t already know, cannabinoids are the name given to compounds found in cannabis plants that will bind to cannabinoid receptors on nerve cells in the brain.
These cannabinoid compounds can be either psychoactive or non-psychoactive. If a cannabinoid is psychoactive, this means that it will have an effect on the mind.
One of the more common cannabinoids present in marijuana plants is THC, which is short form for Tetrahydrocannabinol, and this is the cannabinoid most often associated with getting high.
The level of THC present in the dirty girl weed strain can vary from 17%, which is a medium level, all the way up to 28%, which is a very high level.
There is also another cannabinoid present in the dirty girl weed strain. It is referred to as CBG, which is the short form for Cannabigerol, and does not induce a psychoactive effect or high. There’s 2% of CBG in dirty girl weed.
It is the terpenes with the dirty girl weed strain that are responsible for the strain’s overall taste and aroma.
The most dominant terpene found within the dirty girl weed strain is limonene. It has a citrus flavor and aroma to it, giving off that lemon and pineapple taste and scent that we referred to in earlier sections.
In addition to the fruit rind scent, the limonene is also responsible for producing woodsy and pine sap aromas.
There are other terpenes present in the dirty girl weed strain. This includes caryophyllene, which gives off a very peppery aroma, and the very common myrcene, which is responsible for the somewhat pungent, herby and earthy aroma.
Strain Side Effects
Unfortunately, there have been several side effects reported for the dirty girl weed strain.
The most significant side effect reported is that of a dry mouth, with almost 100% of users reporting this very common side effect.
About a third of users have reported experiencing dry eyes, while 26% have reported feeling dizzy.
22% of users have reported experiencing headaches as a result of partaking in the strain, but paradoxically, some have reported a reduction in headaches.
And, as you may imagine given the high levels of psychoactive cannabinoid THC present, there can be adverse psychological side effects, also. This includes the likes of anxiety and paranoia.
We are pleased to report, however, that various medical benefits have been brought to our attention…
The predominant medical benefits derived from the dirty girl weed strain are psychological ones. This should not be surprising, given the relatively high level of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC (AKA Tetrahydrocannabinol).
More specifically, it has been found to be very effective at treating depression, and at reducing the user’s stress levels, with over 90% of users reporting these effects.
Meanwhile, almost 20% of users report a reduction in pain, and a small number of users have reported that the dirty girl weed strain can help to treat their insomnia.
It has been brought to our attention that some users have found it effective in treating the likes of eye strain and fatigue.
When first confronted with the dirty girl weed strain, you will first recognize the pungent, earthy aroma that’s typical of all marijuana strains. However, at the same time, you will also be met with a powerful citrus aroma that is reminiscent of lemons and pineapples.
When you smoke the strain, you get to sample the sweet lemon and pineapple flavors on the exhale.
As you may imagine, given the high levels of psychoactive cannabinoid THC present in the dirty girl weed strain (as much as 28% at times), it can produce quite the high.
However, rather than produce an immediate effect, there is quite a gentle onset. But it does not remain gentle!
Users will feel their mood lift and they will become more focused, energized, happy, social, talkative, and euphoric. And, as the name suggests, it can be used as an aphrodisiac, making the users feel sensual and highly aroused.
